Mortal Kombat 1

The Mortal Kombat series has ninjas of every color. Reptile is the classic green ninja, though his appearance is definitely the most varied throughout the franchise. This iteration of the character can shift between a large reptilian creature and a human ninja.

Mortal Kombat 1 also brings back Ashrah, who has not been seen since Mortal Kombat: Ammegadon. She is a demon who has purged her heart of most of its evil. Ashrah made her debut in Mortal Kombat: Deception.

Havik has not been absent from the series as long as Ashrah, but fans are no less excited for him. Havik is of the Chaosrealm and has a very unusual fighting style. Many of his attacks involving maiming or dismembering himself to injure his opponents.

Mortal Kombat 1 will be coming out on September 19th for PC, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch.
